Steve Jobs presented the blueprint for the first smart device back in 2008 when he first introduced the iPhone to the world. This iPhone served as a blueprint for other tech giants to follow later, and this is where many other smartphone companies like Samsung, Huawei, and Oppo, etc. were launched. Of course, each of these companies brought in their perks and offered different features that make them stand out, but iPhones have still managed to retain their popularity, so much so that people continue to stand in queues all night long just for a chance to grab the new model on the first day of its launch.
Every iPhone that has been launched by Apple has made a name for itself and has continued to display excellent feats. Regardless of our personal opinion regarding iPhones, we can all admit that they kick-started the smart device revolution, and our lives are now fundamentally different because of it. This does not mean that iPhones are immune to faults and criticism. If anything, there have been a lot of complaints issued against different iPhone models over the years. Of course, Apple is usually quick to address and respond to these complaints.
One of the latest releases by Apple happens to include the iPhone X, and while this iPhone model has been positively received, there are still some complaints here and there. This is why we will dedicate this article to talking about common issues with the iPhone X, and how you can troubleshoot those issues. If these do not work, you will have to look into professional repair services, and for that, you can refer to the Breakfixnow guide for more details and information.
The iPhone X was released in 2017 and is unique to its predecessors in the sense that it does not have a home screen and was the first iPhone model to have an OLED screen. Now, if you are interested in learning about how you can troubleshoot common problems faced by iPhone X users, you can keep on reading below:
Stuttering & Hanging
If you notice that your iPhone X is beginning to lag, stutter and hang when you are using it, then you are not alone. A lot of iPhone X users have complained about screen lag and issues with performance. Now there is an explanation here and that explanation lies in the battery performance. iOS tends to automatically switch your phone over to Peak Performance Capability to save battery. However, this mode usually ends up causing the lag in your phone’s overall performance. One way to resolve this issue is by going to your Battery settings and disabling the Peak Performance Capability feature.
If your battery is old then that can also explain the hanging and lag, so we strongly suggest getting your battery replaced in this scenario because this usually makes a huge difference.
Dropped Calls & Connectivity Issues
One problem that has been making the rounds in different support groups and forums is a problem with connectivity and calls automatically getting dropped. Now, this can be a confusing issue to navigate through since this can either be a problem with your iPhone X itself or an issue with your network and data provider.
You can try turning your phone off and then restarting it again to see if it makes a difference. If that does not help either, you can go to your data settings, enable 4G, and then see if that helps the connectivity issue. Apart from this, you can forget your network and then reconnect to your Wi-Fi network. You should also check to see if there are any pending updates that you need to start on.
Charging issues can include your phone not charging at all, the wireless charger not working properly, or just slow charging in general.
To rule out that the problem is not in your charging cable, you can plug another iPhone into the cable to see if it will charge or you can connect your iPhone X to a different charging cable and see if it charges properly on a different cable.
Force restarting your phone can help to temporarily deal with charging hiccups but this is not a permanent solution.
You can also remove your iPhone’s phone cover to make sure that the cover is not causing any interference with the charging port. If none of these work out, then you will have to take your iPhone to a support center to determine if there is an issue with your charging port, your battery, or something else entirely.
Of course, this will cost extra money, but at the end of the day, if you want to make sure that your iPhone lasts you a long time, then you will have to make sure to smooth out and deal with small problems and nip them in the bud before they turn into a bigger and more expensive problem.
These are just some of the common reasons behind issues with Wi-Fi connectivity and weak signals. In some cases, these small issues can be sorted with ease and you can resume using your phone as if nothing has happened. However, in some cases, these small fixes are of no help either, and when this happens to be the case, then you know that the problem is caused by something entirely different. We would strongly advise that you take your iPhone to a verified Apple resource center and have one of the experts or technicians look at your phone. This is to rule out the possibility of a failure in hardware or a problem from the manufacturer’s end. If it does turn out to be a manufacturing fault, Apple is responsible for compensating you. If it isn’t a manufacturing error then you can just take your phone to a phone repair shop and have them take a look at it and let you know what might be causing your problem and whether or not it can be fixed.
